Westfield Center for Historic Keyboard Studies 2019 Fall Meeting at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music: Blending Past & Present: Collections and Collectors
What a terrific meeting of music, minds, ideas and instruments as always at a Westfield Center meeting! I had the privilege of organizing and chairing a panel titled: Builder/Restorer/Technician and Performer/Player Roundtable. So thrilled to have a notable panel to set to discussions about the present state and future hopes and issues related to continuing progress with historic keyboards, replicas, and performers. A major concern discussed is how to pass on knowledge regarding care and maintenance as many of the groundbreaking builders are aging. With Stephen Birkett, David Breitman, Robert Murphy, John Phillips and Allan Winkler.
